Fulfilling Day of Edits

As I said in the title, today (which isn't over yet) has been a wonderful day of editing.  I've been working on a section of the film which focuses on David Huang (click to read more about David's ArtPrize piece), and it all came together beautifully this afternoon/evening.  I also gained permission to use a few photos in the film, which was a huge relief!

Here's another "edit status" photo...

(fire + gold = cool)

More soon, need to get back to editing!

Beautiful Sunrise

Nothing huge about the film to note at the moment (worked on editing last night...big surprise), but thought you might like the view from this morning!

Take care,

New Video: Self-Solving Rubik's Cube

This is a video I made with some free time yesterday.  It's comprised of 4000 photos taken over a 5 hour period...yes, slightly crazy.

Another video will be coming soon!

I'm back!

(Editing sneak-peek)

The ArtPrize blogger is back!

The documentary is coming together really well in the editing stage.  It's been an overwhelming task at times, sifting through 40+ hours of film (over 24000 minutes), and trying to find the perfect <1% (50-60min).  The quest for footage has been mostly successful, I've found a few hidden gems, and I'm really pleased with its progress.  It is taking longer than expected...the adjusted (tentative) goal for screening is sometime in January.  Still looking at venues, but I'll keep you updated.

In other news, I interviewed Rick DeVos and Bill Holzinger-Robinson about ArtPrize last Monday, which went very well.  I can't wait to share their views in the film.

Also, two weeks ago I filmed the 20th Anniversary of the Latin Mass at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Grand Rapids, attended by Bishop Hurley.  The video is exporting right now, and I'll post it as soon as possible.

UPDATE (12/07/10)  I've been having technical difficulties with uploading the Mass video...still trying, will update again soon.

I'll try uploading another ArtPrize-related video to YouTube soon (maybe a movie trailer), so be sure to check back.

Gotta go watch football! (go Colts!)

Quick post...

Hey all!  I don't have much time to post, but there's an interesting video on YouTube from Kenneth Brandon about Rubik's Cube mosaics, which includes clips from my PixelPete installation video.

And (in case you haven't seen it) the original video...

There's a longer catch-up post, as well as video from the Solemn High Mass at Sacred Heart coming tomorrow.

Enjoy the videos!
